Sagging or deflated breasts are a common concern for patients visiting our practice for the first time. These women usually assume they will need breast augmentation to restore their breasts to a more perky, youthful position. Yet after a thorough physical assessment, it turns out that a breast lift is the appropriate procedure to bring back their breasts’ natural balance.
What Makes Breasts Sag
Sagging breasts are actually a normal part of aging. Aside from the effects of gravity as we age, the following factors also lead to breast sagging:
- Running (and other similar vigorous activities) without support
- Body weight fluctuations
- Pregnancy and childbirth
- Smoking, as its reduces the production of elastin (responsible for skin elasticity)
